Title: donate eggs

Donate Eggs
  • Byhttp//

  • There are many couples who have a difficult time
    conceiving for various reasons. For some women,
    their ovaries cannot produce enough eggs to be
    able to conceive. In these cases, they can use
    donated eggs from another woman to become
  • These donated eggs can be obtained from a egg
    donor bank from an anonymous donor or can be a
    relative or friend that you ask personally.
    Because egg donation is a lot more complex than
    sperm donation, there are a lot more restrictions
    that come with it as well.

  • Eggs generally can be donated by women between
    the ages of 21-35. 21 for legal reasons and 35
    because any older than that, the less fertile the
    donor women are. There are other medical and
    legal restrictions as well, depending on the
    clinic. Some places prefer to receive donations
    from women who have successfully donated before
    or women who have a track record of fertility.
    Because the process for donating eggs is so
    involved, medical professionals want to allow for
    the best outcome.

  • Again, egg donation is very complicated and
    involved. It involves multiple preliminary visits
    to the infertility clinic for physical and
    psychological examination. Various tests will be
    done to ensure viability. Additionally, the
    doctor and other medical personnel will go over
    extensively the legal and medical ramifications
    of the entire process. This process of informing
    the donor has not always been up to par. Recent
    government regulations have provided for every
    opportunity for the donor and the recipient to be
    adequately informed.

  • Once the donor is approved medically,
    psychologically and legally, the egg donor will
    go through a 40 minute surgery to remove her
    eggs. Then the donated egg will be fertilized in
    vitro, i.e. in a test tube, until fertilization
    into an embryo is successful.
  • Once the egg is successfully fertilized, the
    embryo or embryos will be surgically transplanted
    into the recipient woman. Once the process is
    complete and the recipient woman gives birth to
    the child, the child becomes legally her child.

Donating Eggs can be Lucrative
  • The money that donor women can making from
    donating eggs are steadily climbed over the
    years. Because of the involved process, it brings
    in a lot more money that sperm donation. Women
    donating their eggs can make anywhere from 5,000
    - 10,000 or more from doing this.
  • Someone may approach you specifically to ask for
    your eggs, at which you might be able to make a
    lot more. Infertility clinics at the turn of the
    21st century was offering upwards of 5,000, but
    now, New York State may be offering up to 10,000
    according to a recent news story.

  • There are many critics who say that poor women
    will start donating eggs hard pressed by their
    financial situation, wanting to make money and
    that this will exploit them. In any case, the
    money women can make from egg donations seem to
    be on the rise.
